I like Lifestyle Headshots better than passport photo type headshots. And I bet you like this kind of professional headshots better too! We’re in a world of relationships and connecting with one another. When doing business, people want to trust you and want to follow you and want to see your story. Instagram stories and Snapchat stories and Facebook days and all the others like Periscope and YouTube channels etc etc etc let people have glimpses into not only the face behind a brand, but behind the scenes a little too. That’s how we trust our favorite people and brands. Do you have a go-to beautiful photo of yourself to use for LinkedIn photos or social media profile photos? Even if you do not have a product or service to market, you’re still a boss. You deserve the best. You are important and having a photo that you love gives you a touch more confidance. There is a time for silly photos or pictures of beautiful scenery, but not for where your face is supposed to be! Adults do not need to update headshots too often as long as they honestly look like the face in that profile photo. Let me take your profile photo for you! These bosses had a retreat here in beautiful Clearwater Florida and hired me to take lifestyle headshots for them along with some extra fun photos they will be able to use on social media and can use them for website photos for their businesses. They were prepared and it was beautiful.image to pinterest

These ladies know how to have fun the right way! They wake up early, work out together, have a plan to help one another be happy by giving gifts and surprises and working together with grattitude. They set and achieve goals together and keep one another at the highest level of motivation because they laugh! I saw it! They each have their own life stories. They do not live near one another, so they made one another a priority and came together with their tribe to vibe. I got to be a part of it and was only missing out on the matching T-shirt 🙂 These girls are beach body coaches who take their contageous happiness and spread it to other women. From their individual instagram stories (yes I follow them now,) I see them have normal lives and fit in their priorities and it makes me happier too.image to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterest

Any time is a good time for fun lifestyle headshots, so if you’re in the Tampa Bay Florida area, especially in Seminole, Clearwater, or St. Pete area, email me to get on the schedule. You’re beautiful and fun and so worth it!

How about a headshots date day? Scheduling or gifting a professional headshot is the best kind of Valentine’s Day gift! Of course, the headshots date day itself can’t be a surprise, but I have gift certificates that can be the gift! A girl needs some time to prep and get her hair, nails, make up, and outfit just right. But imagine that your boyfriend or husband is this guy. He’s so thoughtful that he not only takes the morning off to be with you, but he schedules pictures and he’ll even smile in them because he loves you that much! He shows you he fully supports you and your growing business by scheduling you a professional headshot before taking you out for brunch downtown St. Pete. Yea, that’s the dream, right?! This guy was asked to give his employer a headshot and since I’ve been their family photographer since their boys were babies, he thought of me. But more importantly, he thought of his wife! They get their family photos like usual, but his day was a date day just for the two of them! It was so fun! Of course I got a bunch of the two of them together too. It was like an engagement session! It’s the best date idea ever – if the husband/boyfriend thinks of it 🙂image to pinterestimage to pinterest

Family photos are important, especially when families are growing with little children. But actually, before the babies start coming, couples need good portraits of themselves together, in love. These two have been taking couples photos since they were engaged, every year. They told me that I told them that’s important because I wanted to make an anniversary slideshow and had photos of my husband and myself as a couple before we had kids, but those were out and having fun. They were still good because they showed our real selves in the real world, and we posed together for the camera, but once we started having kids, the photos of just the two of us were so hard to find, and they definately weren’t quality ones. So. It’s super important: take photos of the kids every year yes, and family portraits every year, but get the couples shot every. single. year too! Apparently I said so 🙂

 

These are some fun photos to show how happy this family is together. It’s a random little sampling and includes a dog that walked up to photo bomb them. The girl wasn’t scared, but she was surprised! image to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterest

    You are SO talented! You have so much natural talent with photography. I’m so thankful that you helped my kids feel comfortable so you could capture their real smiles. And I’m so thankful you told us to take couples photos every year because you are so right! Thank youuuu!!!ReplyCancel

Happy Birthday to this daddy of 3 adorable giggly happy girls and husband to this gorgeous beachy wife of his. I will be making a live portrait for them when they choose their photo they wish to order for their wall. She has a vision and was specific with the photos because she knows where on her wall she wants her family photo. When she holds her phone up to it from sitting on the couch, she will be able to relive this photo session of when they were on vacaimage to pinteresttion to the Tampa Bay area here in Florida. I love it! image to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterest

This beautiful family has been taking family photos with me every year for their beautiful Christmas cards and for their extended family since they are the only ones who live here in Florida. We have been to many places for past sessions including last year’s urban downtown photo session. They may live in Clearwater, but we’ve already done a beach session too so we went back to the Dali museum downtown St. Pete by the water.image to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestIt was a little cold that day. It warmed up some, but the one perfect day for our busy schedules happened to be the one cold day that month. Of course, cold for us Floridians, luckily is not that cold. The silly sweet cute kids got to play at the airplane park afterwards as their reward.image to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestimage to pinterestThis is a favorite pose for my families. I have photos like this of my siblings and I love them. It’s hard with little babies and wrestless kids and parents who have special photoshot clothes on their families not to mention how it messes up hair, but the grass is green here. It really is, and I know we take it for granted, but there’s white or brown stuff covering the ground most other areas. I sure do love Florida and the fun families here!
